This is exactly the type of restaurant I look for when going to a new country/city. The variety of food was great and the flavors were a treat.

I loved the bustling , chaotic atmosphere of this restaurant. The servers were all friendly & the portions huge. The menu is the largest menu I have ever seen - with lots of African specialities as well as a huge choice of other foods. I am sorry I did not discover it before. The prices are good . I will...

I was there two times for dinner and both visits were great. Absolutely fantastic senegalese food with very good service. The (probably) owner was preseted both days (evenings) organising the little chaos on place. Both days the place was crowded, so you should be early there or be patient and waiting. I can highly recommend Thiebou Dieune with lamb meat... More

Run by a lovely Cape Verdean family this busy place serves fabulous food with übergenenous portions. I've rarely enjoyed eating out so much. Excellent Senegalese Creole and Cape Verdean cuisine. Prompt service and great value. I found nothing like it anywhere else in the city.

We went there for lunch and had the Thieboudienne and chicken Yassa, regular portions were way over expectations, one plate could have been enough for two. I really like the Thieboudienne however I was less satistfied with the Yassa, it didn't taste like it was fully cooked. As for the service, it was right on point.

The restaurant doesn't look very inviting on the outside, but there is a clean and atmospheric inside room, partly open to the sky, where most of the tables are. We had the lunch menu: appetizer + juice + main dish (fish yassa; tcheboudienne) + fruit. Copious, and reasonable price (2,750CFAF for the fish yassa, for instance).

It was nice to get to a place w an English menu - don't judge. I just didn't have enough time to learn French within wks of planning this trip. I enjoyed the diversity of meal options.

If you know what to expect--good food, massive portions, convivial atmosphere bordering at times on chaos--you'll not be disappointed. This is a place for elbow to elbow digging in, conversation which may well spill over to the adjacent tables and not being squeamish about a smudged drinking glass or a fork with a bent tine. I have dined here about... More
